Nice little series, really good to see cheddar and brean again now that I've left Bristol and the UK. Not sure if you've got on it, but I'd highly recommend fettered trajectory as a first 7b+, nice technical climbing, seems to suit your style!

Yey well done Maya, great climbing! Inspiring too, although I'm pushing 6as not 7as!!
Very well produced videos, I had that wee song on the intro in my head all week! A great idea to have a short series following a climber to their goals, more please!

In reply to UKC News: Yo Maya, next time you are back in Cheddar give House Burning Down a go if you haven't already! Its one of the best routes there, and by the looks of things you'd crush it.

Really enjoyed this series, great to see videos about a climber doing grades I may be able to do one day! It's really inspiring to see you've come on with your climbing and your confidence, I'm not very confident leading and I feel inspired to try and get better at it. Well done :)

Also what's up with the nut? Has that been left there? Not exactly encouraging bolting!

Good effort, anyone who tries their hand at making climbing films for others to enjoy deserves credit in my book. There's definitely a place for easier climbing in films if its done well. And Maya is so much nicer to look at than Adam Ondra...

Finally got them to play! Nice one Maya and Adrian.

I do think that the music swamps it all a bit in places though.

music's the best bit, apart from the psychedelic colour invasions. This one was proper rad like.

It's something you can place in case you don't like the spacing between bolts 2 & 3 I believe.

Nice to see she got it in the end - I chatted to her on a working day on it but didn't know that she had ticked it :)

Thank you for all your feedback and positive comments, I'm glad most of you enjoyed the series!

And thanks for the route suggestions, I tried Fettered Trajectory once, thought it was pretty hard! I think I was having a bad day, so will give it another go, will have a go at house burning down too when I'm back from uni.

Yes Nicole, AJM's right, there's quite a space between bolts 2 and 3, and although your unlikely to fall (if you did you'd probably hit the ground) so I thought I'd put a nut in just in case. And good luck with getting more confident leading Nicole, I've found the more you just get on it and push your self, you gradually get less scared!

Congrats on the ticks Maya :) despite your recommendations I've yet to get onto All Hands or Skullduggery, maybe some time soon. House Burning Down is brilliant, definitely worth a crack.
